Strout to head Mass. Film Office

Native returns after leading New Mexico Film Office

Lisa Strout has been tapped to head the reconfigured Massachusetts Film Office.

She replaces Nicholas Paleologos who was let go last year when a reshuffling placed the quasi-independent agency under the direct control of the state’s Office of Travel and Tourism.

Strout is a Massachusetts native who returns home after a decade in the New Mexico Film Office, the last seven years as its director. Prior to that she worked on a number of a film and TV productions in Boston and Los Angeles.

During her tenure in New Mexico she brought in films such “No Country for Old Men” and “3:10 to Yuma,” drawing more than 156 productions that were attracted to the state.

According to Betsy Wall, exec director of the Massachusetts Travel and Tourism office, Strout “promises to build on our efforts to make Massachusetts the premier destination for film and television projects.”

Strout takes over June 15.
